Heineken® House Returns To The US Open

Experience Features Exclusive Food Pairings and Record Setter Activities for Fans to become US Open Legends

WHITE PLAINS, N.Y., Aug. 20, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Heineken®, the nation's leading upscale beer importer, will bring back the Heineken House to the 2014 US Open in its 23rd year of sponsorship.  Located above the food village, the destination will provide an interactive retreat at the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center, with live screenings of the biggest matches, entertainment, activities and ice-cold Heineken.  New for 2014, tennis fans can enjoy sandwiches created exclusively for Heineken House by chef Mario Carbone of the critically acclaimed NYC restaurant Parm and have the chance to compete in "Legend Setter", an interactive competition for fans to participate in their own off-the-court challenges via a partnership with RecordSetter.com.

HEINEKEN(R) HOUSE RETURNS TO THE US OPEN - Experience Features Exclusive Food Pairings and Record Setter Activities for Fans to become US Open Legends

"Jeff and I are incredibly excited to have been approached by Heineken to bring our sandwiches to the Heineken House at the US Open," said Mario Carbone, Parm.  "Our custom-created zesty Italian combo and Godfather sandwiches were made with the spirit of New York in mind and we're pleased to bring something new to tennis fans. Nothing pairs better with a cold Heineken than one of these sandwiches, and we're confident these will help establish Heineken House as the place to be at this year's US Open."

Legendary moments will not just happen on the courts but also at the Heineken House as the brand challenges fans both at the matches and watching across the country to set new records through the "Legend Setter" challenge. Each day, visitors to the Heineken House are given the opportunity to etch their name in the record books through fun, tennis-related tasks, such as tallest tower of tennis balls stacked in 30 seconds, most tennis ball bounces on a racquet in 30 seconds, and longest time balancing a tennis ball on forehead. Video of the top records set each day will be posted online at RecordSetter.com, where tennis fans across the country can try to top the records set on site. Winners holding the highest record in each competition held onsite each day will have a chance to win tickets to the championship matches at the 2014 Open.

"This year we've expanded the Heineken House to make it an even more memorable, legendary experience for fans at the US Open," said Pattie Falch, Brand Director, Sponsorships & Event Marketing, HEINEKEN USA. "Between a menu created by some of New York City's best chefs, a chance for fans to write their name in the record books, and of course the best spot on site to put your feet up and enjoy an ice cold Heineken, the Heineken House is truly an enhanced experience for tennis fans." 

Heineken House will also be bringing back popular experiences from last year's debut, including the "Heineken Perfect Pour" competition, which will be judged by local NYC bartenders and hosted daily for the first ten days of the tournament. Guests can also play a round of cornhole, snap a photo in a GIF-enabled photo booth or visit the Heineken Pro Shop for limited-edition US Open and Heineken co-branded merchandise, including t-shirts and sweatshirts.

Also on the grounds of the US Open, the Heineken Red Star Cafe, a full service restaurant, returns to give consumers yet another location to enjoy cool beer and great food on the grounds.

Today we can collect lots and lots of performance data. We build beautiful dashboards and even have fancy query languages to access and transform the data. Still performance data is a secret language only a couple of people understand. The more business becomes digital the more stakeholders are interested in this data including how it relates to business. Some of these people have never used a monitoring tool before. They have a question on their mind like “How is my application doing” but no id...

In IT, we sometimes coin terms for things before we know exactly what they are and how they’ll be used. The resulting terms may capture a common set of aspirations and goals – as “cloud” did broadly for on-demand, self-service, and flexible computing. But such a term can also lump together diverse and even competing practices, technologies, and priorities to the point where important distinctions are glossed over and lost.
Predictive analytics tools monitor, report, and troubleshoot in order to make proactive decisions about the health, performance, and utilization of storage. Most enterprises combine cloud and on-premise storage, resulting in blended environments of physical, virtual, cloud, and other platforms, which justifies more sophisticated storage analytics.

All clouds are not equal. To succeed in a DevOps context, organizations should plan to develop/deploy apps across a choice of on-premise and public clouds simultaneously depending on the business needs. This is where the concept of the Lean Cloud comes in - resting on the idea that you often need to relocate your app modules over their life cycles for both innovation and operational efficiency in the cloud.

Information technology is an industry that has always experienced change, and the dramatic change sweeping across the industry today could not be truthfully described as the first time we've seen such widespread change impacting customer investments. However, the rate of the change, and the potential outcomes from today's digital transformation has the distinct potential to separate the industry into two camps: Organizations that see the change coming, embrace it, and successful leverage it; and...
Without a clear strategy for cost control and an architecture designed with cloud services in mind, costs and operational performance can quickly get out of control.

Fact: storage performance problems have only gotten more complicated, as applications not only have become largely virtualized, but also have moved to cloud-based infrastructures. Storage performance in virtualized environments isn’t just about IOPS anymore. Instead, you need to guarantee performance for individual VMs, helping applications maintain performance as the number of VMs continues to go up in real time. In his session at Cloud Expo, Dhiraj Sehgal, Product and Marketing at Tintri, sha...
The Internet of Things (IoT) promises to simplify and streamline our lives by automating routine tasks that distract us from our goals. This promise is based on the ubiquitous deployment of smart, connected devices that link everything from industrial control systems to automobiles to refrigerators. Unfortunately, comparatively few of the devices currently deployed have been developed with an eye toward security, and as the DDoS attacks of late October 2016 have demonstrated, this oversight can ...
